Question about Motorcycles

Hi, I have an electrical query regarding my 2005/6

Hi, I have an electrical query regarding my 2005/6 Harley-Davidson FLHXi street glide. I have removed my entire front fairing along with all gauges, switches and the stereo, an opted for an FLHR set up instead. And as I'm barely a beginner when it comes to the electrical side of things, I am almost finished and thought I should check before taking her out for her first post-make over voyage. As I have removed so much of the electrical system, I am concerned about my charging system and a possible voltage overload. I have removed all relevant fuses as well as all relevant wires from the fairings interconnect harness. What else would you suggest I do in order to protect my bikes electrical stability from a complete meltdown???

In the wiring to the new components, install a breaker, about a 30 amp should do well.

SOURCE: 2005 Harley Davidson XLC. There was a pop from

Check the front wheel. The speedo drive normally resides on the front wheel hub. Take a look at that and see if it looks normal, I'm thinking your cable broke inside the speedo drive which made the "pop" sound. There is a possibility the drive could also have cratered but this will have to be determined when the speedo drive is removed from the front axle and inspected for damage and function.

SOURCE: how do i remove the rear wheel on a 2005 harley

you should not have to remove shocks dont do that to remove wheel loosen the back section of your exhaust the nut that holds it is the only one you need to take off the back section of your exhaust now loosen the tension screws in front of the axle nut on both sides this creates slack on your belt or chain drive take off big nut on axle use tools on both sides at same time to keep axle from spinning take weight off of wheel just enough to allow wheel to be wiggled and slide the axle out you can tapp on axle just not on threads if you have to beat on it place nut on axle loosly and hit only to free it up it should slide out after a few taps the brakes are on a spacer style format on axle rememmeber with spacer goes on which side they are different in size to accomadate wheel spacing to brakes and belt alignment when wheel drops remove drive type belt or chain wheel should roll out of place you may need to lift bike higher with lift or jack to clear fender on roll out ta dah you have your wheel off to put back on reverse this order i change all my own tires have done all types for friends i hope this helped you

SOURCE: Do I need to remove my fairing to replace the headling bulbs?

Hi there,

well you can please follow the below steps -

Remove the Fairing - 1. Unscrew all seven outer fairing fasteners using a Torx driver. These screws are located on the inner fairing near the windshield, the speakers, and the handlebar clamps.
2. Stand in front of the motorcycle. Tilt the outer fairing toward you and hold it firmly. Reach in and disconnect the wire connectors for the headlight assembly by hand.
3. Move the fairing to a work bench to continue the procedure.

Change the Headlights - 1. Remove the wire harness connectors from the back of each headlight that need replacement. Turn the plastic retainer counterclockwise by hand to remove each bulb from its housing.
2. Install the new headlight bulb or bulbs, with each bulb's wider ears on the bulb back plates oriented toward the top. Screw in the plastic retainer rings by hand.
3. Connect the headlight wire harness connectors to the back of each headlight.
4. Move the fairing back to the motorcycle. Reinstall the fairing, battery and seat in reverse order.
Please post comments if you need more help or information.........

Good Luck!!

SOURCE: where is the fuse located for the horn on a harley

Harley has been moving the fuse panel around since 2000. On the older Wide Glides, it was behind the "electical box" cover on the left side of the bike. That's the cover just to the rear of the coil cover. But, you might want to take the seat off and look there as well.

Good Luck

If you have not added any extra items using more current that what you had there will be no problem. Add up all the watts that you are using and see if the alternator is exceeding that demand. Make sure that every unit is properly fused to protect the wiring harness.
